Simon Fraser University professor Mark Jaccard is one of three new appointees to the federal government’s national round table on the environment and the economy (NRTEE).

Jaccard, environmental consultant David Chernushenko and Timothy Haig, president and CEO of BIOX Corporation and chair of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association, will examine and advise on the environmental and economic implications of issues brought to the NRTEE.

A professor in SFU’s school of resource and environmental management, Jaccard’s accomplishments include serving on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development. He has chaired several public inquiries and has advised governments throughout the world on energy issues. His 2005 book, Sustainable Fossil Fuels, won the Donner Prize for best policy book in Canada.

The NRTEE was established in 1988 to explore new opportunities to integrate environmental conservation and economic development. Its mandate has recently been enhanced to provide advice to the federal government with respect to the clean air regulatory agenda.
